Algora Publishing would be interested to explore the option of reprinting some of this out-of-print titles. Any suggestion?

I think we should encourage Monthly Review to start reprinting older books as .pdf files. That’s an affordable option for consumers, and wouldn’t involve big risks on their part.

Actually I would recommend the 1978 Andre Gunder Frank book which is out of print.  I wrote to Martin Paddio to re-print that text (World Accumulation 1492-1789) and I think it there are more faculty willing to use the text it may actually get reprinted.  So why don't you write to Martin Paddio (editor of Monthly Review Press) requesting re-printing of a most important text that suffers from the danger of going permanently out of print?  Ganesh.

L.S. Stavrianos published a wonderful book entitled "Global Rift: The Third World Comes of Age" in 1981.  It was one of those life changing books for me that set me off on a journey that I am still on.  Unfortunately it seems to be out of publication now.  Does anyone have a one volume text that can replace this one for new students interested in learning about the history of world capitalism from the 15th century to the 20th?

Eric Wolf's book, "Europe and the People Without History," while great, just doesn't hit well with many students.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.
